Free Shipping & Fast Payment for Your iPhones, Smartphones & iPads, Including Damaged & Broken Devices
Looking to clear out some clutter and get rid of those unused or broken iPhones, smartphones, tablets, iPads, or other devices sitting around your house? These days there are many different ways you can recycle or even resell your old devices and it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what is the best choice. It seems like a lot of the options that exist force you to choose between equally important factors such as expediency, resale value, eco-friendliness, and security. So, what are these different options, and which one is the best?
Recycle Your Electronics
You’ve likely seen electronics recycling bins at recycling centers or even retail stores, and for many of us it’s the quickest and easiest way to unload our damaged or old electronics. The biggest drawback is that you rarely get reimbursed for the items you donate, despite the fact that the company is likely going to get money for them! If you do get something back, it’s usually not much. So yes, recycling your electronics in this manner is quick and easy, but it has its drawbacks.
Another issue with such programs is their security protocols. You may be thinking, “But my devices don’t have any valuable or sensitive information on them!” Many, if not all, of your personal devices likely have personally-identifiable information (PII), login credentials, and even financial information stored on them. Even if you delete that information, that data can actually remain behind on your device. Many of these recycling programs aren’t up front about their security measures and may be unloading your used or even broken devices onto some shady characters.
Recycling your tech devices is eco-friendly, right? Not so fast! Did you know much of the waste we put in recycling bins, whether it be electronics, plastics, metals, or other materials, actually ends up getting sold to other countries such as China? Such countries don’t have as strict environmental policies as the United States, and their labor laws are even more exploitative. Even if your devices end up being reused, the way in which they are processed and repurposed can create a lot of waste and pollution, which is why it’s important to go with a reputable electronics recycling company.
Resell Your Electronics
In recent years, the used electronics market has skyrocketed. Chances are, you probably know of a local business dedicated entirely to the refurbishment and resale of used electronics. In fact, larger retailers have caught on and even offer resale or trade-in options for cash or store credit. It may not be as fast or convenient as dropping off your electronics to a store bin, but at least you get some of your hard-earned money back, right?
If you’ve ever been to a dedicated cell phone store to purchase a new device, you know they often offer you the option to trade in your old phone to receive a credit towards your new device. You should know where I’m going with this: the amount they quote you is often so small you start debating whether or not you should just keep it. Maybe you could give it to a friend or a family member. Surely, they’ll get more value out of it than the measly amount the store is offering to give you in return! Reselling used electronics can be hit or miss when it comes to just how much you get back and it can be difficult to find companies that will offer you the most money for your used electronics.
Okay, so your earning potential is probably pretty low when it comes to typical buy back programs. Security policies with such resellers can vary widely, so it can again be a toss-up as to whether or not your data will be protected. At the very least if you decide to sell your used electronics, they’ll be reused, therefore reducing electronic waste in landfills. But what about your broken devices? You couldn’t possibly make any money off of damaged electronics, and we’ve already ruled out that many recycling options are only eco-friendly at first glance.
The Best of Both Worlds
It’s no wonder that after weighing most of the pros and cons of various used electronics resale and recycling options that many individuals, corporations, school districts and other organizations are left unsure of what to do. But what if you could sell not only your used, functional devices, but also your damaged electronics? If that sounds too good to be true, what if I said you could do both of those things and all of your devices wouldn’t end up in a landfill? Furthermore, you can do all of these things quickly and easily with free shipping for used or broken iPhones, smartphones, tablets, and iPads.
